dinosaur eel

Ok I did a quick search and didnt see anthing at answered my question.

I just got a dinosaur eel, a sengal bicher to be specific, but after doing some reading my GF is kinda freaking out cause we keep seeing that they are able to get out of a tank. Has anyone ever had one get out or caught one trying. My GF has a really nice tank lid that doesnt seal in the back at all, and she is afraid it will crawl out that way. The water level is about 2 inch from the top, if I took another 1-2 inchs off would that be enough to keep him from getting out?????

I really like it but she wants me to take back cause, and I quote "its going to get out and drink my sweet tea, cook and eat a steak, and watch a movie". Please give me some good news so I can keep it.

Recently I've had two escapees (not bichirs, a clown loach, then a Denison barb) and I only had a small 1" x 6" opening on my tank that wasn't covered. Fish can and do escape.
I'd say keep the bichir but get the tank properly covered so he's not able to get out.

Figure it out. I remembered a mesh top that I used on my old 55 gallon that I had used for some lizards I once had. I cut it up to fit perfectly around the top and the filter, I would be very very shocked if he got out now. I even got my GF's approval

Great! Now that you have the GF's approval it's time for her to make YOU that steak dinner.

Sounds good, would be better if she knew how to start the grill
